Oh what a super cool 5yo I have! Thank you Sam Wilson for owning this gorgeous gorgeous boy HOMERUS. Another double clear and 10th at Moreton Morrell today!!!

So proud of my boys today at Aston Le Walls intermediate!

CAPTAIN FUTURE popped round for an easy double clear finishing 7th in the OI, next stop Houghton Hall 2*
And my up and coming superstar COOLEY LEGALAND was amazing. Super test, a bit green SJ but flew around the XC very easily clear inside the time to finish 13th. Next he goes to do his first 3 day at Houghton Hall in the 1*!!

A brilliant day 2 at ASTON LE WALLS.
My ever improving superstar SAN SOLO was a winner winner chicken dinner. His second BE100 win on the trot. Owned by myself and Sam Wilson, Solo scored a 25.8 and cruised around double clear one second inside the time!!!
CALVIN too was pure class again, a very smart test as usual for this flashy horse and an easy double clear, annoyingly I went 1 second too fast so picked up 0.4 time faults but he finished in 4th
And it was also lovely to have LSS LANZAROTE back out at Novice, a good test with a few wobbles to score 32.3 and he jumped a super double clear adding just 2.4 time faults to finish in 4th!
Great day with some very special horses!!

Another great day with the babies out eventing at Millfield.
All 3 were competing in the BE90open.
HOMERUS owned by Sam Wilson, produced a super dressage and jumped a lovely double clear inside the time to finish 4th
TOP HONOURS owned by Myself and Sam Wilson, was having his first run of 2017, he was rather excited in the dressage but jumped an effortless double clear inside the time.
And next was PAINSWICK RISE AND SHINE now owned by Sue Leeson and Mimi Cox, a sweet test and a clear SJ but a baby run out XC otherwise he was super!!!

A bit of an up and down day at TWESELDOWN today. I was there with just CALVIN in the NRF! He had some beautiful trot work in his first intermediate test but the judge wasn’t so keen on all the flying changes in the canter, but he made up for it with yet another double clear inside the time.
He is such a super star!
Thank you to his 3 amazingly supportive owners, Molly, Lucy and Sue. To Mum and Hannah at home and my second mum, Sue for coming with me.
I couldn’t do it without you all and my amazing sponsors Gatehouse, Treehouse, Mark Todd, Spanish Boot Company, Baileys Horse Feeds, and Antares Saddles!!!

An educational weekend.
The horses learn’t a lot at Houghton Hall.
COOLEY LEGALAND was doing his first CCI*, a super smart test and a nice double clear inside the time to finish 9th.
CAPTAIN FUTURE doing his first CCI**, a good test with some mistakes, a good clear XC picking up 3.2 time and a lovely SJ round today for 4 faults to finish top 30. And last to go was BLUSTEREN doing his first CIC***, he did a super test for the stage of training he is at, an effortless clear SJ but sadly a bit green XC but overall he learnt!!
Now for a lovely 5 hour journey home.
Huge thanks to Hannah and mum for grooming and Tu for holding the fort at home.
My amazingly supportive owners and sponsors for everything they do!!!
